A little history first; as of 08/31/19 we (wife & I) owned 3 Mopar vehicles. A 2003 Ram 1500, a 2017 Ram 1500 and a 2012 Dodge Journey. Son had been driving the 03 to college. When he was moving out to his new job starting in 09/19 I took back the 03 and gifted him the 17. Daughter still has the Journey with her at college. Knowing this was going to happen I had been looking for a new 1500. Found one and started negotiations. My long time mechanic who had always worked on the 03 new what I was doing and asked to buy the 03 for his grandson’s 16th birthday. I came to an agreement to purchase but I was having the dealer do some add ons and I was going to have to make an overnight trip to take delivery, so in good faith, I overnighted a check for the full purchase price with the agreement they would proceed with the add ons but the check wouldn’t be deposited until I took delivery. In the week between sending the check and taking delivery I sold the 03. One of the rebates available at the time was the $1,000.00 “loyalty” rebate. Seven weeks after I took delivery of a 100% cash purchase I get a call from the dealer telling me FCA rejected the Loyalty rebate b/c I didn’t own a truck on the day I signed the final purchase papers. They wanted me to pay them another $1,000.00. I told them I needed that in writing. 24 hours later they call and say they got FCA to roll over and allow the rebate. I’m truly not sure how I should feel about this episode. Was the dealer trying to pull something or were they really a hero and got FCA to do the right thing? Either way, I was never going to cut a check for the $1,000.00. I have an itemized bill of sale that doesn’t have the loyalty rebate listed as part of the discounts.
